Tall and Fluffy Buttermilk Biscuits

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Chef Wahoo

This is a modified recipe from the "American Test Kitchen" but is very close. If you like a nice tall biscuit and are tired of the Hydrogenated Canned biscuits then this is for you.

Top Review by Chef Dissa Debba

A tedious recipe that seems to over complicate things. The dough turns out like runny pancake batter, then tells you to roll it in a pan of flour. It was impossible to roll, it was simply sticky goo. I ended up adding the panned flour that I was supposed to roll the dough in, and just added it to the dough. It was still very sticky and took me three times the work of a regular biscuit recipe. Not to mention no bake time is included. One person stated it took hers roily 12-14 minutes. Mine took 22 minutes. I will not use this recipe again.
